MHKDesigns April / May Challenge

Hello, friends!  Welcome to our fourth MHKDesigns Challenge - Spring Edition! This Challenge is all about keeping it simple and having fun while creating. Each each month you will get  a photo and colour swatch prompt. YOU decide which you're inspired by to create your work of art. It can be either or both. AND you are free to make what ever paper project you fancy - a card, scrapbook layout, a tag, a box, art journal page... you choose! The options are limitless.

The Design Team will be showcasing products from MHKDesigns Etsy Shop and we would love to see you use them too. However, you are free to use any products and enter the challenge to win some fabulous goodies by MHKDesigns. If you use stamps or papers by MHKDesigns you may ignore the Challenge prompt altogether; i.e. it's ANYTHING GOES for you!

Let's take a look at the Challenge prompt:

My project for this challenge features there lovely pears from the Fruit Borders set. I'm keeping the design fairly simple with just s few bling and some twine for embellishments.

A closer look at the gorgeous pears. All I did was colour them with Faber Castell Polychromos. I've gone for a sketchy look - no fancy blending of a gazillion colours here.

Craft Dee Bowz April: AG with Handmade Bow

The winner of this Challenge stands to win some fabulous products by MHKDesigns. So make sure you follow the challenge rules and you'll be eligible for the prize. And if you need a little creative boost, you'll find more inspiration by the rest of the Design Team over at the Challenge Blog. You have until May 15th to link up your project.

Thank you for stopping by today and I'm looking forward to seeing what you create for us this month.
